Beyond Re-Animator (2003)
Director: Brian Yuzna
Main Stars: Jeffery Combs, Tommy Dean Musset, Jason Barry, Elsa Pataky
Storyline: Hebert West is back from jail and now works as an assistant as he continues with his experiments of bringing the dead back to life.
Review (Spoils): Crazy Hebert West (Jeffery Combs) has been serving 15 years in prison for his crimes in the past films. While there he was continuing his mad experiments on rats bringing them back to life while a prison MD named Dr. Howard Philips (Jason Barry) asks him to become his new assistant. Howard falls in love with a young journalist named Laura (Elsa Pataky ) and while this is continuing as usually West’s experiments go out of control.
Bring on the gore yet again for this one in the series. The Re-Animator series has never lacked on the blood, gore and zombie stuff and like the others it has lots of humour and does not take itself serious. Jeffery Combs yet again impresses as his by far best character in his horror career and the special effects are actually real good for the budget they had. Brian Yuzna did a great job with this film and it reminds me a bit of Peter Jackson’s Dead/Alive which is a great thing.
Rating: When you have a rat-fighting-penis scene then you know you have accomplished something in horror. It is great to see Hebert West back on the screen as this is one of the best when it comes to horror series. Plus we have hottie Elsa Pataky!! So let’s drink to that crazy Hebert West!!!
